Ramsay Street is the fictional cul-de-sac in which the characters of the Australian soap opera Neighbours live. The street is set in the fictional Melbourne suburb of Erinsborough.

A storyline within the show saw the name of the street nearly changed to Ramsbottom Street. Harold Bishop won. Pin Oak Court, in Vermont South, is the real cul-de-sac. All of the houses featured in the show are real and the residents allow Neighbours to shoot external scenes in their front and back gardens. Neighbours has been filmed in Pin Oak Court since the series began in 1985 and it has since become popular with tourists. Tours to the cul-de-sac run throughout the year; the interior scenes are filmed at the Global Television studios in Forest Hill, the adjoining suburb in which Pin Oak Court is located. Neighbours creator Reg Watson was sure that the neighbourhood setting was a good idea for a serial drama, following his work on daytime soap opera Until Tomorrow, set in a suburban street.

Richard Sorge was a German journalist and Soviet military intelligence officer, active before and during World War II, working undercover as a German journalist in both Nazi Germany and the Empire of Japan. His codename was "Ramsay". A number of famous personalities considered him one of the most accomplished spies. Sorge is most famous for his service in Japan in 1940 and 1941, when he provided information about Adolf Hitler's plan to attack the Soviet Union. In mid-September 1941, he informed the Soviets that Japan would not attack the Soviet Union in the near future. Various writers have speculated that this information allowed Stalin to transfer 18 divisions, 1,700 tanks, over 1,500 aircraft from Siberia and the Far East to the Western Front against the western Axis Powers during the Battle for Moscow. However, Soviet code-breakers had broken the Japanese diplomatic codes, Moscow knew from signals intelligence that there would be no Japanese attack on the Soviet Union in 1941. A month Sorge was arrested in Japan on the counts of espionage.
He was tortured, forced to confess and hanged in November 1944. He was posthumously awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union in 1964. Sorge was born in the settlement of Sabunchi, a suburb of Baku, Baku Governorate of the Russian Empire, he was the youngest of nine children of Wilhelm Richard Sorge, a German mining engineer employed by the Caucasian Oil Company, his Russian wife Nina Semionovna Kobieleva. His father's lucrative contract expired a few years and the family moved back to Germany. In Sorge's own words, The one thing that made my life a little different from the average was a strong awareness of the fact that I had been born in the southern Caucasus and that we had moved to Berlin when I was small. Sorge describes his father as having political views that were "unmistakably nationalist and imperialist", which he shared as a young man; the cosmopolitan Sorge household was "very different from the average bourgeois home in Berlin."Although Sorge considered Friedrich Adolf Sorge, an associate of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, to be his grandfather, he was in fact his great-uncle.
Sorge enlisted in the German Army in October 1914. At age 18, he was posted to a field artillery battalion with the 3rd Guards Division, he served on the Western Front, was wounded there in March 1916. Shrapnel broke both his legs, causing a lifelong limp, he was promoted to the rank of corporal, received the Iron Cross and was medically discharged. While fighting in the war, who had started out in 1914 as a right-wing nationalist, became disillusioned by what he called the "meaninglessness" of the war, he moved to the left. During his convalescence he read Marx and became a communist due to the influence of the father of a nurse with whom he had developed a relationship, he spent the rest of the war studying economics at the universities of Berlin and Hamburg. Sorge received his doctorate in political science from Hamburg in August 1919, he joined the Communist Party of Germany. His political views, got him fired from both a teaching job and coal mining work, he emigrated to the Soviet Union. Sorge was recruited as an agent for Soviet intelligence.
With the cover of a journalist, he was sent to various European countries to assess the possibility of communist revolutions. From 1920 to 1922, Sorge lived in present-day North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, he was joined there by Christiane Gerlach, ex-wife of Dr Kurt Albert Gerlach, a wealthy communist and professor of political science in Kiel, who had taught Sorge. Christiane Gerlach remembered about meeting Sorge for the first time: "It was as if a stroke of lightning ran through me. In this one second something awoke in me that had slumbered until now, something dangerous, inescapable…." Sorge and Christiane married in May 1921. In 1922, he was relocated to Frankfurt. In the summer of 1923, he took part in the Erste Marxistische Arbeitswoche in Ilmenau. Sorge continued his work as a journalist, helped organize the library of the Institute for Social Research, a new Marxist think-tank in Frankfurt. In 1924, he and Christiane moved to Moscow, where he joined the International Liaison Department of the Comintern, an OGPU intelligence-gathering body.
Sorge's dedication to duty led to his divorce. In 1929, Sorge became part of the Red Army's Fourth Department, he remained with the Department for the rest of his life. In 1929, Sorge went to the United Kingdom to study the labor movement there, the status of the Communist Party of Great Britain, the country's political and economic conditions, he was instructed to stay out of politics. In November 1929, Sorge was sent to Germany, he was instructed to join the Nazi Party and not associate with any left-wing activists. As cover, he got a job with the agricultural newspaper Deutsche Getreide-Zeitung. In 1930, Sorge was sent to Shanghai. For cover he worked for the Frankfurter Zeitung, he contacted Max Clausen. Sorge met the German Soviet agent Ursula Kuczynski and American journalist Agnes Smedley.
